Child Psychiatry 25 years experience
Have parents set up: a visit to your regular doctor to see if overall this is something that could be medical or if indeed you need a referral to a child psychiatrist or a therapist. And by all means do not let anyone prescribe benzodiazepines like valium, xanax, (alprazolam) ativan, or clonazepam- as they are addictive and lack medical evidence of effectiveness as a mainstay to treat anxiety. Take care.
